Extractions: Rayburn House Office Building Introduction Good morning, Congressman Burton and Members of the Committee. I am Richard Kaplan, M.D., of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). I am a Senior Investigator in the Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program and I coordinate NCI's extramural clinical research on prostate cancer treatment. I am accompanied today by Jeffrey White, M.D., Director of the NCI's Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine. I am pleased to appear before you today to describe NCI's prostate cancer research program and our growing interest in complementary and alternative approaches to prostate and other cancers. The Congress has asked NIH to make prostate cancer a top priority in allocating funding increases; to accelerate spending on prostate cancer; and to consult closely with the research community. Under Dr. Klausner's leadership, NCI has undertaken a vigorous effort to respond in all of these areas. The nature and magnitude of the burden of prostate cancer has been tracked by NCI's surveillance program, and we estimate that about 180,000 men will be newly diagnosed with prostate cancer this year and about 37,000 will die. Prostate cancer exacts a particularly devastating toll on African American men; incidence rates are substantially higher among African Americans, and mortality rates in African American men remain more than twice as high as rates in white men.

Extractions: A r c h i v e d I n f o r m a t i o n Introduction Research and common sense suggest that smaller classes offer teachers the chance to devote more time to each student so as to improve their learning. A number of states have already implemented class size reduction programs, and others are in the process of development. Skeptics worry that reducing class size will increase costs without producing substantial benefits, however, and class size reduction programs certainly present challenging problems as well as opportunities. Does reducing class size really improve students' education? Should teachers hired to teach in smaller classes be prepared differently? Will hiring more teachers in order to reduce class size exhaust the supply of qualified teachers? The available research evidence contains some useful guidance for educators and policymakers who face these questions as they try to craft the most beneficial class size reduction strategies. Research on Class Size Researchers have used various techniques to study how class size affects the quality of education. They have looked at the relationship between class size and student achievement, and have conducted various kinds of studies related to class size and its possible influences on educational practice. In the last 20 years, enough research has been done for researchers to have taken the results of many experiments and data collections and synthesized the accumulated findings into general conclusions. In some analyses, the researchers have used data about student/teacher ratios as a means to examine the class size effects, because the original research lacked a direct measure of class size. Some of the statistical analyses in the last 10 years have been quite large in scale.

Extractions: University of West Florida Libraries Traditionally, African-American Studies has focused on the history of Black people in the United States. However, as reflected in the following sources, African-American Studies is highly interdisciplinary, and seeks to acquaint students with trends, issues, and forces that have shaped the Black experience in America. At the same time, such factors as cultural adaptation, institutional development, and group self-definition are examined, while surveying the contemporary status and condition of African-Americans. Many of the following indexes and abstracts, although they are multidisciplinary in scope, contain a wealth of information germane to African-Americans.
